Wind in the Willows

We have all been so proud of the children this week in our production of Wind in the Willows. Every single child in the school took part and it was wonderful to see how confidently they sang and acted.

Sports Night Recounts

Year 2 have written these recounts of Sports Night for the website:

Sports Night    by Georgina   
   On 4th July it was Sports Evening and parents came to watch us take part in lots of sporty activities.
We sat in our colour groups and then did lots of different activities, which meant things like football, sack race and 3-legged race. It was great fun! Elsa broke the bell but it was soon fixed. Phew!
After that, just before the proper races, the toddlers did a toddler race! Then we did races for every year group. There were girls and boys races.
Then Mrs Doherty added up the scores and gave the trophy to the winning team which was Orange Team. An orange ribbon was tied to the trophy which will stay there for the rest of the year. Jools got a certificate for being a good team person.
It was a great night and afterwards there was a cake stall and a barbeque. We were all tired when we got home I even fell asleep in the car!

Sports Night by Daniel, Liam, Ben and Felix

Last Friday it was Sports Night. The mums and dads came to watch us take part in lots of sports activities. The weather was really hot but there was a cool breeze.(Daniel)
First we sat on our mats and sat with our team mates and listened and sat nicely. Everyone wore coloured t-shirts to match their team. (Ben)
After that it was the egg and spoon race (or actually the potato and spoon race!) and other activities like a football race and a beanbag race too. Elsa rang the bell then we moved to another activity Elsa broke the bell but luckily someone fixed it! My favourite activity was the football because I scored lots of goals. .(Liam)
When the races began, it was very noisy! The first race was the toddler race. Then everybody else raced. (Felix)
When the races had finished, we sat down. Mrs Doherty gave the trophy to the orange team and Jools got a certificate because he was a good leader.(Daniel)
It was a great time, but we were all tired when we got home! (Liam)

Talent Night

There were all sorts of acts at this year's talent night, organsied by the Friends, from Alfie sawing his sister Daisy in half, to Josh's poetry and lots of singing and dancing.
All those who took part were incredibly brave and the final results were extremely close. Congratulations to Bethany for gaining first place and a special well done to the Pink Ladies for their memorable performance(s)!

New Play Area

Sycamore Tree class were asked to design a play area in our garden. Using lots of maths skills and scale drawings, designs were drafted and submitted.  Bethan and Taya's design was chosen and today they ceremoniously opened it and were among the first children to enjoy playing there.

The weather was amazing for our annual Sports Night on Friday. Here are some photos. Year 2 are writing a recount of the evening which will be posted here in the next few days.
